    Cremation or Burial?

    Yes, it is a weird poll, but another thread got me thinking about this. I choose cremation. The only reason I can really think of is my Grandparents and Parents were all cremated and their ashes spread over the same farm ground. So I guess I am just following suit. So what is your...

    Do you wear your seatbelt?

    Another thread brought this question to my mind. I was never a stickler for a seat belt, unless it was my child. I know, that doesn't make any sense at all. New Years eve year before last my teenager asked me to start wearing mine. I said yes. So every time I think, aww not this time, I...

    Can I use a refrigerator as a cellar?

    I have potatoes and onions from our garden. They could last us through the winter if I can find a place to keep them. We don't have a cellar or basement to use for cold storage. We do have an extra refrigerator. If we adjust the temp could that work? If so what temp do you suggest? Has...

    Will their feathers ever grow back? UPDATE!

    I had a very aggressive rooster. He attacked people and was very hard on the girls. He got himself a one way ticket to freezer camp. That was months ago. I thought once he was gone his "favorite" girls feathers would grow back in. They haven't and the poor things look awful. The skin is...

    At first I didn't think she was serious!

    Dh and I met some friends at the lake last week. I thought the men might like my pickled eggs. I make them spicy and figured it may be fun to share them with friends. I brought the one wife a dozen fresh eggs because she always says how much she loves them. She knows she gets a free dozen...
